Buy, Sell, Trade / WTB CX clincher tires (Noblesville)
« Last post by zeroDrama on Today at 07:31:01 PM »
Need a set of CX clinchers... anything with tread better than a schwalbe sammy slick.  Anyone have anything you don't want and will sell for real cheap?


Needs to be located in Noblesville is the catch.

Weight is a bit above 29lb-ish right now.  I have a couple of tweaks that should drop a little more.  That's on my old fish scale at home.  I will get a more accurate weight on Sunday.


The bike is a fun ride, for sure.  It's a LOT faster than most people will expect a fat bike to be.  Not that I get too wrapped up in Strava stuff, but I set a PR on the Snake Creek climb this morning.  Fat tires, ice, snow, some pretty uninspiring conditions for speed.


It carves corners like nothing else I've ridden.  It loves to be leaned.  Slack head angle (68deg) makes it super stable.  On both the demo bike I rode in Ft Wayne and this one today, I've managed to powerslide both wheels through a corner (remaining upright).  On the demo ride, it was on a greasy corner.  This morning, it was on a couple icy corners.  When it does that, it's not hard to ride it out when you realize what it's doing.  First time it did that, I freaked out and put my feet down.  Now, I just hold my line, countersteer a little, and ride it out.

Very very (yes 2 very's) cool Nate!  I've been following on MTBR and am exited to see him!  How's the ride and of course, have you weighed him yet?

Things were still pretty well frozen this morning and up until about noon.  At a bit before noon, I was noticing that the meadow section at the top of Schoen was starting to thaw.  As I finished my ride at around 12:30, I noticed that the ice on parts of Lawrence Creek was starting to break up.  Too bad we are getting a bunch of rain this weekend.

Rode a lap a bit after 4:30 yesterday.  The trail was fine.  A bit more snow than I expected.  One slightly mushy section on the far south-western portion but everything else was either solid or sandy.

Buy, Sell, Trade / Re: Swagman 2 bike hitch rack - NEW

Sounds good, thanks!  Yeh, I learned the hard way...my brother bought my nephew a pair online through Amazon for $50....live and learn!  If Roger sells them for less, I'd be glad to throw some business his way as well but hopefully I won't need a new pair for a long time.  I DO need to get the inner velcro attached to the handlebar though if I plan to keep them on...would imagine it'd help keep them on better than just the outer velcro and zipper.
